A look at another “Belt-o-Vator”. I like the sign.
The iconic outline of a prairie sentinel. Quintessential rural industrial architecture.
A cracked sign at dock-level, where loading boats would be tied below the taconite conveyors. All across the surface of the concrete dock were taconite pellets, like slippery little marbles. One wrong step could put a worker in the water, which is a bad, bad place to be.
The conveyorway between the on-site grain elevator and mill.
A gateway for St. Louis as seen through a gateway (of sorts) in East St. Louis.
Looking up the Dominion Elevator’s tower. I especially like this picture because it shows how so much of the electrical conduits wound round through the mostly hollow space.
The bricks routinely fell from the walls, like seeds falling from trees. On a smaller scale, new walls grew from the floors.
The Sivertson’s sign seems like from a different time. I’ve never seen it lit, but I bet it’s beautiful.
